An objective evaluation of the history of the world and current events reveal the frequent, incessant and violent nature of ethnic and religious conflicts in countries around the globe. In the words of Donald Horowitz, “ethnic violence since World War II has claimed more than ten million lives, and in the last two decades ethnic conflict has become especially widespread. Ethnicity is at the center of politics in country after country, a potent source of challenges to the cohesion of states and of international tension”.
Recent violence around the world demonstrates that religious conflicts are growing more intense.
Confronted by these facts, many people have been engaged for a long time in the quest to understand the role of ethnicity and religion in human conflict. Important questions have emerged that seek to recognize and explore these roles in hopes of better understanding the causal relationship between ethnic or religious differences and violent conflict.
Committed to the mission of developing alternative methods of preventing, resolving, and educating people about inter-ethnic and inter-religious conflicts in countries around the world, the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation (ICERM) has adopted a unique, comprehensive and coordinated approach to address ethnic and religious conflicts through its online radio project, ICERM Radio.
